Cant figure out how to change my battery

I have a BMW 525i 1991, and the battery is dead but i see no battery under the hood just a positive post where the manual says the battery should be. Do i have to take my whole car apart just to change the battery?

The battery is located beneath the rear seat. Give the rear seat a good upward yank to release from the snap-in holders. The battery is on the passenger side.

1995 BMW 525i 6cyl How many oxygen sensors does it have? And location of them?


It has four. The first two are called the pre-cat (catalyst) or hot side. They are located under the hood on the left side (when standing at the front looking at the motor) on the exhaust manifold. The other two or called the post-cat or cold side. They are in the exhaust pipes coming down from the motor under the car at the passenger side. Replace them with genuine Bmw parts. They are more expensive but you won't have any issues. A lot of problems come from aftermarket sensors because the calibrations aren't the exact same.

1997 525tds dead bettery.cant open boot


There should be a positive connection under the hood that is normally used for jump starting the car. Use jumper cables to power that connection and an engine ground from another car. That will power the car's electronics so you can open the trunk (boot) and replace the battery.

Yes, you may have put the wires on the starter wrong. There is a positive post and an ignition post. If they touch or one is touching ground then the starter will engage.

Where is the battery located in 525i bmw 2004-2007


Quit looking under the front hood...it isn't there. The BMW and Porsche 928 folks love to put the battery in the back. BMW---in the trunk under the right (passnger side) access panel. 928----rear hatback a little left of center under the spare tire. Genius those Aryans.

Can't get to battery on 94 525i. I believe it is under the back seat but cannot remove the seat.


I found the owners manual and it says take it back to BMW!

Most other posts I found on the net say it is under the passengers side rear seat. But I guess that depends on if you have a right hand or left hand drive.
